Abstract

Interspecific association analysis of four nematode species in sugarcane fields of India revealed that Pratylenchus zeae showed negative association with Hoplolaimus indicus and Tylenchorhynchus annulatus and a positive association with Helicotylenchus dihystera. Feeding site and feeding habit are the primary factors responsible for association of the two nematodes.
